[Etoys] Only three weeks ...

... do we officially have to finalize the version of Etoys that will  
be used on the first mass-produced machines (see Kim Q's message below).

The most critical issue we still have is translations. We need to get  
Pango support in ASAP - is this week realistic? And, support adding  
translations without rebuilding the image.

The other big thing is sharing - I'll work on the lower level  
mechanics, and someone should investigate the feasibility of our  
"shared playfield" idea.
